Why Writers Are Not Always The Best Judge Of Storytelling

Theme is probably one of the most-asked questions I get ‘off blog’ when working on writing projects with my Bang2writers. These writers will fret people may not ‘get’ their theme or message, or perhaps even claim the point of their story is ‘wrong’ somehow. But this is the thing. People WILL disagree about the theme or message of your story — even with you, the writer! Whilst sometimes this goes waaaaay off-piste, 9/10 this is actually a good thing … It shows how your reader or viewer has participated in breaking down your story for meaning. This is brilliant!

8 Infographics That Will Help You Improve Your Writing

1) 10 Tips To Improve Your Grammar I always find it interesting when writers will pledge a commitment to their craft, but shrug their shoulders when I say they need to work on their grammar.

Memes are defined as: So, for the uninitiated, memes have always been here, it’s just now they’re much more obvious and in… Read More »How To Be A Successful Writer, Defined By 5 Facebook Memes

8 Stages Writers Go Through Writing A First Draft

So, I’ve been working with a LOT of writers on their first drafts these past few months, both via mentoring schemes like LondonSWF’s Talent Campus, but also with individual writers (if you want to do this too, drop me a line, spots go fast). It’s fair to say pretty much ALL writers struggle with first drafts! Now writers may ENJOY the freedom of the first draft, but new writers and more seasoned types may struggle with plotting in particular. Even pro writers have their own issues … I’ve noticed in the last couple of years character motivation can be a… Read More »8 Stages Writers Go Through Writing A First Draft

INFOGRAPHIC: All About Dialogue – A Periodic Table

So, I’ve written A LOT on this blog about how writers obsess over their dialogue and why they shouldn’t. This is because too often, writers fall in love with their dialogue and end up telling the story via talk alone. Nooooooooooo! However, if you writers *are* going to obsess on dialogue, then you could do a lot worse than finding out exactly what dialogue really IS. Shockingly, many writers don’t differentiate their characters’ speech patterns enough, so what they *think* is cool and interesting, is actually samey and boring to read. If we consider a book like The Maze Runner… Read More »INFOGRAPHIC: All About Dialogue – A Periodic Table

INFOGRAPHIC: Most Annoying Writing Mistakes

Script editors and script readers should not be confused with proof readers or copy editors. It’s a common error writers make, but we give STORY NOTES, whereas proof readers will check and correct your grammar, punctuation and spelling; a copy editor will also check for accuracy and ‘flow’ of the read. However, I’d be lying if I said I DIDN’T give the odd note on grammar and word usage whilst giving said story notes. I’ve written time and time again on this blog about the pet peeves readers have when giving notes to writers. There are also words that get… Read More »INFOGRAPHIC: Most Annoying Writing Mistakes
